Sorry if this is redundant, i could not find it anywhere.

Any one surf at night with under water LEDs that light up the wake? We have surfed it at night, but with above the water lights (flashlights mostly)

just wondering, would love pics!!

A good set of tower lights work best!

Necklace glowsticks.

Would like to have underwater LEDs this year but it's low on the mods list.

Pics would be cool

It's a criminal code offence in Canada for the boat driver. Like drunk driving or armed robbery.
I don't think there is any problem for the rider though, so if you could convince your mother-in-law... Naw, probably not worth it.

i would like to offer led lights with an optic sensor with solar panel as an option on boards but dont think it would sell. So how many states allow night wakesurfing or watersports???

I think its probably illegal in every state to be riding after dark. I know its illegal in TX. Doesn't really stop anyone, but its very much frowned upon

USCG law for inland waterways is 5 mph after sunset. So I guess if you can surf at that speed, it might be legal?
Old    Harold Hemming (h20king)      Join Date: Dec 2009       01-12-2010, 7:51 AM Reply   
think your off on the law our river has barge traffic at night and they travel way faster than 5mph law is any thing inland and up stream of a 5mph zone is a 5mph states you can not have riders in tow after dusk but only illegal if you get caught
Old    Show (bigshow)      Join Date: Feb 2005       01-12-2010, 5:08 PM Reply   
No, if itís illegal its illegal, regardless of whether or not you get caught.

Pretty sure your not suppose to cruz over 10 Mph at night?!?!? Not sure tho, but these lights above are dope, need about 10 more to light up an X-80 wake.

A good GPS system makes it much more manageable.

I'll get you some good video soon.
We just got the 2010 Super Air Nautique with tower lights and underwater led lights.
Can't wait to surf it at night.
We have surfed at night quite often with glow sticks on our boards, wrists and ankles, but not yet with the underwater led lights.

I have KC daylighters pointed forward and LED for lights pointed back. Works like a champ. We surf at light a lot. Only thing is the bugs can be nasty!

Cant wait to see pictutres!

we had thought of using glow sticks, but never did.

My KCs really light up the night and it's very easy to see surfers. We don't use glow sticks.

The law pertaining to pleasure craft does not apply to commercial vessels on harbors/rivers due mostly to the fact that pilots are required for navigation at night (day in some areas as well).

Got busted for tower lights on the last boat twice (Pedro & Hogan) so didn't bother to put 'em on the new one. And as any watersport is illegal after dusk here the transom lights are useless as well. Look at all the money i've saved!

I have Led's that light up the wave and the wash on the other side. We definietly use led sticks on the rider and the board to see them at night. We've tried to capture it on film but it doesnt turn out.

Against the law here in NC and SC, but we did it any way, just had to at least once

For underwater LEDs, check out the Shadow-Caster LEDs Or for a little easier on the budget, look at the Sea Blaze series from Lumitec

You just have to run more batteries in the boat and ,depending on how you weigh your boat you need to have the lights shine with the angle of your wake.
